neo-soul // contemporary r&b

N’Dambi got started as vocalist with the big afro, backing up the soul siren Erykah Badu. Her solo albums sound like what you’d expect from Sunshine Anderson, India.Arie, The Princesses Nubiens, or Erykah — laid back grooves with an upright bass, a scatting vocal line, and a head-nodding chorus. “Call Me” snuck itself in my head after listening to my man Maze’s radioshow. It’s a standard song structure, but it’s got definite head-nod appeal. Her gentle voice injects subtle but solid emotion that gets right down to the soul of it.
It’s a red-light drizzly night outside, but you’re in where the vibe is swingin’.
